    Article on Gaudreau regarding next season:

    I'd be surprised if he leaves

    Valid point on UNH.

    Mediocrity sucks. I don't accept it and I certainly don't enjoy it. Bring on the new regime!

    I disagree. When I say on an upswing, I'm not referring only to the last game, or even the last two. Certainly, upsetting BC in the semis was a high point. But when I say an upswing, I'm referring to the 6 wins in 7 games or whatever they were going into the HE Championship.

    JD - trust me, I was ticked off during that horrible stretch. And BU fans know that winning two of those four against NU and Harvard, maybe even one, might have made the difference. More importantly, the team just played terribly and I do look at the team's inability to get out of it as the sort of epitome of why it was time for Jack to go.

    But BU had started playing well before he announced his retirement. Although you could argue the competition was weak.

    Excuse me, Egon, merging the threads is bad.

    BU played inspired hockey because of parker retiring. They get credit for that but there were no indications of them being good prior to the announcement (unless you want to hang your hat on beating nu).

    What does it say about a team that they needed that motivation? I'd be ****ed and left wondering where was this against harvard/nu earlier in the year.

    - BC had a better season than BU, they won the Beanpot, BU won nothing.
    - BC's season finished on the downswing. A rarity lately, something for us BU fans to take some element of enjoyment in.

Another rarity lately, something for BU fans to take some enjoyment in, especially given the added excitement of the change at the top many of us have been waiting for.

    Agreed but not this goalie. Leblanc wins.
